Good articles are a higher status of article than regular articles. In order to become a good article, there are certain criteria that the article must meet. These criteria can be found at Wikipedia:Requirements for good articles.

This page is to discuss articles to decide whether they meet the GA criteria. When an article is posted here for discussion, it should have the {{pgood}} tag placed on it. This will place the article in Category:Proposed good articles.

Articles which are accepted by the community as good articles have their {{pgood}} tag replaced with {{good}}. They are also listed on Wikipedia:Good articles and are placed in Category:Good articles. Articles which are not accepted by the community as good articles have their {{good}} tag removed.

Articles that are above the good article criteria can be nominated to be a "very good article" at Wikipedia:Proposed very good articles.

This tool can be used to find the size of an article.

If you choose to participate in the discussion process for promoting articles, it is very important that you know and understand the criteria for good articles. Discussing an article is a promise to the community that you have thoroughly read the criteria and the article in question. You should be prepared to fully explain the reasons for your comments. This process should not be taken lightly, and if there is concern that a user is not taking the process seriously and/or is commenting without reason, they may have their privilege to participate taken away.


Proposals for good articles[change]

To propose an article for Good article status, just add it to the top of the list using the code below. You may have one nomination open at a time only. Proposals run for three weeks. After this time the article will be either promoted or not promoted depending on the consensus reached in the discussion.

This is not a vote, so please do not use comments such as "Support" or "Oppose" etc.

This is a GA on enwiki. I've expanded the article a ton, but it probably needs simplifying. Currently, I'm working on creating pages for the red links. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Eurodyne (talk) 23:54, 22 February 2015 (UTC)

Germany national football team[change]

This article should be a GA because it gives a detailed history on the team, it displays the fixtures of the team, shows their achievements, uniforms and players, etc. Any recommendations for improvements needed will be appreciated. Also, compare the article to other national football teams and you will see that it is superior. Alicezeppelin (talk) 20:57, 18 June 2015 (UTC)

@Alicezeppelin: References are not formatted and more importantly, German football didn't start in 2000, so the page is significantly lacking content for a GA. Regards, Pmlineditor (t · c · l) 07:53, 20 July 2015 (UTC)
